Summer Family Fun Activity

— Written By

July is National Blueberry MonthIn our Empowering Youth and Families Program, we frequently talk about fun family activities. Caregivers want something that’s cost-effective, fun, and educational, and youth focus on fun. Visiting a local pick-your-own blueberry farm is an activity that will please everyone!

Explore your community, get some exercise while enjoying the sunshine, discuss how blueberries are grown, and gather a delicious and versatile fruit to transform when you get home!

Get creative in the kitchen by making kid-friendly smoothies, muffins, leathers, popsicles, and more! Visit Blueberry Council to find any information you could ever need related to blueberries!
